Anyone know if this is 2012 route ?

Did the ride in 2011 only problem I found was the lack of manners from some of the other riders. and it's usually the ones with all the gear and no idea.

I did this in 2010, found more of a problem with people telling me I was going too fast and with motorists who were completely in tolerant, debating doing it this year!

Did the Manchester to Blackpool night ride Sept 2012 for the BHF, nice ride of about 1000 people, a good route, 52 miles in total with no major climbs, i completed it in just under 3 hours and would certainly do it again
